What do you get with `which lex`, `lex --version` ?

I have the same problem, with ubuntu 06.06 doesn't have lex installed,  when I do an apt-cache search for lex about 60 programs come back but I do not know what program to install to fix this

the only thing you have to do is installing flex which is on your FedoraCD seek it in RPM and do this: rpm -i flex(version) and problem solved.
